You guys never cease to amaze me... I was telling him that he should try on a TV with lower resolution/CRT TV, not a higher resolution HD TV. Here's how it goes:
Example of game. I only played PS2 games on an emulator, and I could see the resolution, although I could set it to something different. But then the game would have become weird, with some crappy lines separating the screen.
native resolution game(512*512 native) X HDTV (1920*1080) = Sh*tty stretched graphics
native resolution game(512*512 native) X CRT TV/ LCD with lower resolution = Great graphics/ Not as bad as the HDTV
What I'm suggesting is try using a CRT TV. Y'know, the big things with screens the size of a child. Try those.(I know I'm telling you to use a old TV instead of a HDTV, but try that and see if it works. Even if it doesn't, you wouldn't notice it since they have such low resolution and such big pixels.)
